Babygates that don’t screw into wall?

I’m looking for a baby gate for top of staircase, preferable one that won’t screw into wall to avoid it being pulled out. Any suggestions?

    Regalo are good ones. I had one on the bottom of my stairs and the top. The only problem I had was if I didn’t lock it all the way my daughter knew how to open it

    I'm just gonna throw this out there. Apologies if I sound soap boxy . My 2year old is 28lbs and 3 feet tall. Our baby gate is screwed into the drywall with butterfly bolts (no studs due to angle). He has thrown himself full force at that gate at the top of the stairs 5 days a week because he's excited to see daddy and the gate has never so much as wiggled. If you don't want to damage the wall by all means I second the regalo we have one in the hallway and love it. But I personally feel a screwed in gate is safer than a pressure gate

    Dream baby works well for me. For me I just used the old fashioned one you put up and down on some of my stairs because that was my only option. It also forced myself to start teaching my kid how to use the stairs. Our house is full of stairs. We used gates. But my main goal was to feel safe with them on stairs because I can’t block it all off. So I teach how to do it and do it with them. So when there is no gate or it does fall down it’s not the end of the world.
